Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Europe '72 and vinyl

So in light of the news of the new box set, has anyone seen fit to revisit the original album?

I recently picked it up on vinyl, and it consequently (and unexpectedly) shot up in the pantheon for me. It's just a crisp, beautiful album, despite perhaps being musically inferior to any number of individual shows from that period.

Anyone else had that experience? For that matter, has anyone found that a different medium changed his overall impression of a Dead album?

Yeah... CD. I will never forget finally being able to listen to Live Dead all the way through without having to flip an album, or a tape.

I did recently someone posted about it but I can't remember who? Was way better then I thought. It had been a long time(years) since I heard it and the feedback and Morning Dew were just awesome. I have it on cd but am trying to pick everything up on vinyl. Yesterday I just got Wake, Workingmans and NRPS Panama Red for a buck a piece along with a few other records(7 albums for $11) so most of my day was spent listening to those. Love the sound of vinyl even if it isn't just exactly perfect.
